Walking for Water Campaign

Not only have we been supporting charities with their Digital and IT strategy for over 20 years, we understand the importance that fundraising can achieve for organisations who are making a real difference in society both locally and globally. The Penny Appeal is just one of those that supports the most vunerable in over 30 crisis-hit countries worldwide. 

Our very own Junior Network Technician Faisa, is embarking on a 3,560ft trek up Wales' highest peak Snowdonia on the 2nd March in the Walk for Water campaign, in order to raise funds for two wells across two villages in poverty-stricken Palestine. The walk itself is something that kids around the world do every day to reach water for their families. 

We wish her the best of luck and donations can be made by visiting Faisa's Just Giving page.
